Tom Holland may have torn up the box office with Spider-Man: No Way Home, but he starred in another Sony blockbuster with the Uncharted film. Just in, Sony has officially released the first 10 minutes of the movie, and it offers some backstory between Nathan Drake and his brother Sam.
The movie immediately starts guns-blazing with the stunts, and we get to watch Nate trying to climb back into a plane mid-air before being caught before he falls. This then transitions into a moment between a younger Nathan Drake and his brother, and it’s a scene that’s taken right out of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The entire clip kind of ends remarkably, with the reveal that the adult Drake works as a bartender.
While the action set pieces are no doubt amazing, I think it was kind of misguided to have Tom Holland star as Drake. If anything, he’s just a powered-down version of Peter Parker; I mean, they didn’t even think of changing his hair to match the video game character at least.
For now, it’s unclear whether we’re going to get an Uncharted sequel. I mean, reviews were divisive, and the movie kind of came out during the resurgence of the Omicron variant. Hopefully we get some kind of announcement soon, but personally, I’m just fine watching Holland be Spider-Man. They can wait a few years to give us a more adult Drake, if you ask me.
Treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan recruits street-smart Nathan Drake to help him recover a 500-year-old lost fortune amassed by explorer Ferdinand Magellan. What starts out as a heist soon becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada can get his hands on it. If Sully and Nate can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure — but only if they can learn to work together.
Uncharted hits digital on April 26 and Blu-Ray/4K UHD on May 10.
